This TV Junior is right up there with the finest guitars we've had through the shop, a close second or third to the Fender Nocaster I picked up during COVID lockdown as my "I'm Back" piece.

There isn't a cleaner Jr on the planet - I'm certain of it.  This guitar is captivating.  The only change from original are the replacement plastic buttons on the Kluson tuners.  

The kickers: this guitar plays perfectly and the sound is out of this world. 

There is light checking throughout and very few small surface dings. 

The original case has lost some stitching, making it useless for holding the guitar.  In order to justly protect this museum piece, a former owner put it in a Custom Shop '59 reissue case.
